Brief Write-up

Pinch valve is a Seatless & Glandless valve.

Pinch valve is a modified version of laboratory pinchcock. A rubber sleeve is protected under
a cast iron casting. The fluid passing through does not come in contact with either body
covering or any other metal parts of the valve except the sleeve. Hence the body and other
metal parts are almost permanently not subjected to the corrosive action of the fluid. The
flow through the valve is straight and full as that of a pipeline, when the valve is fully open.
Further, the collar of the sleeve eliminates gasket. The valve is simple hand wheel operated of
rising wheel type. Therefore the operation of the valve is just simple as other wheel operated
valve. The in-between stoppage will allow the desired throttling.
Thus the valve offers positive control over flowing media.

APPLICATION: Pinch valve finds its best application in handling corrosive slurry, abrasive
media, liquid with solid suspensions and many others, which are difficult to handle with seat
valve.

RANGE: The flange of the pinch valve can be supplied in accordance to BS, DIN, ASA & IS
dimensions The range for the valve is from 15 mm TO 300 mm.

ACTUATION: The valve can be supplied with Electrical and pneumatic actuation.

Operating Manual

THE PINCH VALVE is a modified version of the laboratory pinch cock. A rubber sleeve is
protected under a Cast iron or Aluminum split body casting. The valve is a simple hand
wheel operated of rising wheel type. The operation of the valve is same as other hand wheel
operated valve, it closes when moved in clockwise direction and opens when moved in
anticlockwise direction. The in-between stoppage will allow the desired throttling. Thus the
valve offers positive control over flowing media. The flow through the valve is same as that of
a pipeline, when the valve is in fully opened condition. Further, the rubber sleeve eliminates
the need of a gasket.

PRELIMINARY PRECAUTION: On receipt of the valve please check the position of the
valve, as it is advisable to keep the valve in fully opened condition. Also check the position of
the travel limit nut, if found loose then tighten the set screw of the nut.

INSTALLATION: The valve can be installed without any gasket unless it is required for some
specific purpose. Tighten the nut of the flanges evenly & equally, but avoid too much
tightening. After installation check the free movement of the upper & lower pinching bar by
opening & closing the valve. The valve is then ready for the service it is installed for.

MAINTENANCE: If the valve is found leaking through the seat after sometime even though
in fully closed condition, then set the travel limit nut by just taking it 1 or 2 threads above &
then tighten. This will allow more room for travelling of rubber sleeve & ensure the valve to
zero leakage. This problem sometimes occurs when the sleeve is slightly worn out, when used
under abrasive condition. Further, The Rubber sleeve of the valve upto 2” (50mm) have a
single lug on either side and it goes into the hollow passage of the pinching bar where it is
fixed with the lug clamping screws. In the higher sizes above 2”, the sleeves have two lugs on
either sides and are fitted overlapping the pinching bar.

DISMANTLING THE VALVE & REPLACING THE RUBBER SLEEVE: When the rubber
sleeve is ruptured or totally worn out then it is to be replaced with a new one. In this case first
dismantle the valve by following the instructions.
1. Remove the hand wheel.
2. Open the Tie Bar nuts.
3. Disconnect the spindle from the Horseshoe connection and remove it completely with the
bridge.
4. REMEMBER not to temper the set screw of the yoke bush, unless if required it should be
completely tight.
5. Open out the nuts & bolts of the split body of the valve.
6. Remove the screw of the lugs from both the pinching bars.
7. Now fit the new rubber sleeve & reverse the operation to assemble the complete valve.

NOTE: It is advisable to keep a spare rubber sleeve for maintenance purpose, considering the
self life of the Rubber as six months when packed & stored in dark. The Pinch valves should
be stored in fully open condition only. We also offer complete spares of the valves, but request
you to place your order a week in advance.
